I am the lucky recipient of experiencing both yoga and massage from Elin. Her talents and perception of what an individual needs is exceptional.I have witnessed in the hours after a massage both lightness and freedom of movement along with reduced pain and greater flexibility.Upon rising from my yoga mat, I have felt greater balance if that was what I needed, more grounding if I have been too much in my scattered thoughts and worries, as well as more energy. Today when I closed her door behind me, I was filled with Joy - so needed after a very long and difficult work week. Elin is a very special practitioner who is eager to learn new modalities to incorporate into her body work along with enhancing the skills she has already mastered.
Before coming to Elements of Bodywork, I had only done yoga and massage for fun on vacation. I didn’t see it as a lifestyle. Elin is accepting of my limitations while challenging me along the way. The feeling of calmness after a yoga class or massage stays with me as I use the techniques Elin suggests specifically for me.
Elin is top notch in everything that she does. I’ve been practicing yoga with her for a few years now, and she’s very good at assessing what each individual needs.
Absolutely amazing! Will never go anywhere else. When I first started seeing her a year ago I was unable to walk comfortably due to an injury. I now am back riding my horses, going to the gym, and am able to stand or sit comfortably.
I was inspired to join Elin for yoga and bodywork in an effort to lessen the effects of arthritis. Before coming to Elements of Bodywork, I exercised at the YMCA, went to a chiropractor regularly, and had bi-weekly massages. Yoga seemed like a natural step to take to keep me limber. I heard through the grapevine that Elin was starting a studio, so I checked it out, and I am thrilled I did. The yoga classes increased my flexibility, and had the added benefit of relieving my stress levels. When an opportunity arose to experience a massage with Elin, I jumped at it. Elin’s skill at massage therapy is wonderful, especially when I need work on acute flare ups. She is very intuitive about where I need body work most. I will continue to attend Elin’s classes when I can, and get body work as often as I can afford it... it is worth it!!
